Earlier this year, we awarded four capital improvement grants. One was to A Chance for Champ. We awarded them $3K to set up intake kennels and an AC unit for their shelter. They sent us pictures recently to show the progress on their project.
Percy and Tink were born of an HPAN-sponsored, pregnant, rescue dog taken in by A Chance for Champ. Now that her babies, Percy and Tink, are old enough for all of their vetting, we kicked in funds to get them all fixed up and ready for adoption!
Bear and Lulu were born of Queen, a dog we sponsored a couple months ago for A Chance for Champ. Now that the pups are weaned, it’s their turn to be vetted. We sponsored their vaccines, deworming, spay/neuter, and microchips for $100 each.
Snowflake was pulled from a shelter by A Chance for Champ. She needed to be spayed and treated for heartworms. We sponsored these needed services so she could live a full life.
Ozzy was surrendered to a shelter by his owner because he was old and lame. Local rescue group, A Chance for Champ, saw Ozzy’s potential and thought he deserved to live out his life, so they pulled him into rescue and whisked him off to their vet for evaluation. Ozzy needed his ACL repaired to the tune of nearly $600. We paid the balance they weren’t able to cover, which was $288.
Sassy, Sweetie, and Buddy were owner surrenders from a family in East Tennessee to A Chance for Champ rescue. They needed vaccines and spay/neuter, which we sponsored. All puppies will be adopted into loving homes very soon.
Queen was in foster care for a shelter in Georgia. The foster knew something wasn’t right with her, but she had been checked out and was told that Queen was fine. Turns out she was very pregnant and in labor. Queen started having puppies, and when one got stuck in the birth canal the foster had to act quick, so she called on someone she knew in Tennessee who ran a rescue. Michelle with A Chance for Champ made a quick trip to pick up Queen and get her to the vet in Tennessee. One puppy was stuck in the birth canal and did not make it, even at attempts to deliver her via a cesarean section. We were able to sponsor the vet bill, and thankfully mama and remaining puppies are doing OK.
A Chance for Champ pulled Falcon into their rescue program from the Anderson County Animal Shelter when he was diagnosed with heart worms. He would have been euthanized without their assistance. We were happy to pay the Humane Society of the Tennessee Valley’s medical clinic for his treatment, and he is recovering in foster care.
Milo was surrendered by his owner to A Chance for Champ. He was sick and in need of emergency care. That’s when we were called on to help. Milo has been diagnosed with parvovirus, and he is fighting for his life. A simple vaccine could have prevented this. We contributed $300 to the mounting charges. If Milo makes it, he will be put up for adoption buy the rescue group.
Ammo was pulled from a shelter by A Chance for Champ. He started to show serious viral symptoms and quickly became dehydrated. Emergency care was required to save his life. We contributed $300 to the bill.
